Custom Fretted Instruments & Repair
1972 Martin D-35
Nice old D-35.
This one has a nice tone, plays in tune and the action is just right. Great tone fingerpicked, but has some decent volume when you hit it.
It has had a few things done to it over the years. We did not perform any of the work, so cannot comment on how some things happened. The neck has been reset and the pickguard has been replaced. The bridge has been off and back on, but appears to be original. Some binding has been broken and repaired as well.
We did replace the original micarta saddle with a custom bone saddle. It was too low and had been shimmed with a guitar string.
Action is at 5/64" on the treble and 7/64" on the bass at the 12th fret with the saddle at about 1/8" high.
Non-original Martin hardshell case included.
